About

Hi my name is Matthew. The chances are that you have found your way here because you have realised that you need support or would like to work through certain problems and anxieties. My experiences have allowed me the opportunity to help people through issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Bereavement, Panic attacks, Anger and loneliness to name a few. As a counsellor I have spent the last two years offering counselling support to young people in a secondary school and allowing them to work through their issues in a creative and helpful way to them.
My counselling utilises a variety of approaches, I use what is called an integrative approach, but primarily use a person-centred approach, aiding you to find the best ways to solve your problems and empowering you to do so. Each person is unique and I believe that counselling should be unique and tailored to a person specifically.
Seeking help is a scary, stressful and worrying time and you have already taken a huge step by acknowledging that you may need some extra support. Within our sessions I will offer you the chance to explore your issues and concerns in a comforting, empathetic, understanding and confidential manner.
